No, not a chance in hell.
Episode three of Bonekickers was as hackneyed and laughable as the previous two.
This series has a habit of rewriting history, only for the amazing discoveries to be lost forever in a fiery finale or rock collapse – if it wasn’t for those pesky hot-headed archaeologists jumping in with their size 9s instead of being more considered in their excavations the truth would have surely been revealed.
But Bonekickers is actually making history. It is becoming the greatest waste of licence payers’ money the BBC has pulled off since Eldorado.
Half-way through and the on-going mystery of “the sword” is adding a further “eh?” factor to the overall mess of the series.
This time it was ancient Rome and the Celts who were subjected to the Bonekickers boneheaded approach.
Can you smell something? Is that deadly gas?
No, it is still just a big pile of stinking poo.
